An equation is shown below: 8(2x – 14) + 13 = 4x – 27 Part A: Write the steps you will use to solve the equation, and explain each step. (6 points) Part B: What value of x makes the equation true? (4 points)

step 1 distribute the 8 into 2x-14

16x-112 +13 = 4x-27

step 2 combine like terms

16x-99 = 4x-27

step3 subtract 4x from both sides

12x -99 = -27

step 4 add 99 to both sides

12x = 72

step 5 divide both sides by 12

x = 6
